I hope that the summer has gone well for you. I know many of you have been completing some amazing rides over the summer, including the incredible Trans Continental Race. I have just competed in the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in Varese. Unfortunately British Airways managed to lose my bike, so it didn't go as planned but there is always next year.
Talking of events, here is a short list of those I'm looking to take part in and would organise a group trip if there was sufficient interest. Please take a look and if you have any questions get back to me.
1. Gran Fondo Roma - Sunday 14th October. This has been voted one of the top 30 GFs in the world. Start and finish at the Colosseo with timing only for the various climbs and neutralized both for descents and historic site routes at the beginning.

2. WCT Benidorm - Sunday 27th October. This course is familiar to those who have traveled with me to Spain before. This is a tough day out of 153km and 3640m with 4 catagorised climbs. Should also be the perfect racing weather and by the beach too! I have already entered for this event so this trip will definitely run.
3. Gran Fondo Strade Bianche - Sunday 10th March. The most beautiful course for hard bike race. Combining 'classic' type climbs with the white gravel sections makes this a wonderful yet very challenging event. This will be my 5th year going to Siena so this event will definitely run.
The package includes return flights, rooms in a 4 star hotel with breakfast, airport transfers and fondo entry. Final price depends on flight price but look at starting price of £795 all in which compares very favourably with other operators.
If there are other trips/events you are interested in, or would like me to organise, then please get it touch.
Many thanks as always,
